Health Coaching has been defined as, “…the practice of health education and health promotion within a coaching context, to enhance the wellbeing of individuals and to facilitate the achievement of their health-related goals” (Palmer et al., 2003). Health coaches help clients identify their goals, develop an action plan, and help put the plan into action while giving support and helping to motivate clients toward success. The Department of Kinesiology & Health Promotion at the University of Kentucky proposes a new 15-credit graduate certificate in health coaching designed to meet the supplemental education needs of current health promotion professionals and those training to become health promotion professionals. The graduate certificate would be open to any students who are already are or will be enrolled in a degree program, or those who simply apply for postbaccalaureate (non-degree) status in order to complete the certificate, are eligible to apply for admission.
